‘Vanderpump Rules’: Jax Taylor Plans to Write Tell-All Book About the Show and Move to Kentucky
Jax Taylor from Vanderpump Rules has been privy to the major scandals and drama from the reality television show for years. The reality TV star himself has been at the very center of these scandals, and likely has plenty to say on what has gone down on the show for several seasons. In a recent Instagram Live, Taylor said he plans on writing a tell-all book about the Bravo TV show and wanting to move to Kentucky with his wife Brittany Cartwright. Read on to see what he had to say about it.
Jax Taylor was on ‘Vanderpump Rules’ from the start of the show
The 41-year-old TV star has been on the show since it began in 2013. The spinoff of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills stars 20- and 30-somethings trying to “make it” in Hollywood. They start the show by working at Lisa Vanderpump’s restaurant SUR, before becoming celebrities themselves, and some even investing in other restaurants with Vanderpump. For example, Tom Sandoval and Tom Schwartz are co-owners of TomTom in West Hollywood.
Taylor himself has become notorious among Vanderpump Rules fans for his on-screen antics. He has been the source of many storylines on the show, including cheating on both Stassi Schroeder and Cartwright.
In summer 2020, the show fired Schroeder and Kristen Doute for how they treated Black castmate, Faith Stowers. The two former stars of VPR were let go for accusing Stowers of a crime was not involved in. Other newer castmates were also fired for racist social media posts.
Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright are leaving ‘Vanderpump Rules’
Following Vanderpump Rules firing Schroeder and Doute, Taylor and Cartwright confirmed that they would not be returning to the show either. This came after fans demanded that Bravo fire Taylor and Cartwright for their insensitive remarks in the past.
Taylor and Cartwright received a lot of pushback from fans during season eight for using a pastor at their wedding who had posted homophobic comments on his social media. This was a plotline on the show, with Sandoval speaking to Taylor directly about it, since his girlfriend Ariana Madix identifies as bisexual.
What’s next for Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright?
Taylor took to his Instagram account on February 12 to discuss what’s next for him and Cartwright, as well as voice his opinions on “cancel culture.”
“It sucks that you can’t be real and say what’s on your mind,” Taylor said in his Instagram Live, per Reality Blurb. “There’s nothing you can say anymore that doesn’t offend somebody in this world. People love to attack people for saying things. It’s like ‘attack culture.'”
Taylor spoke about wanting to write a tell-all book about VPR.
“Maybe I’ll wait another year or so and I’ll do a tell-all,” he said. “I’ve got nine years worth of sh*t to talk about. I would make it about the sh*t that happened on the show. I probably won’t have any friends after that, but whatever.”
He also said that he wants to move to Kentucky with Cartwright after their child is born.
“It’s not happening today but it is in the foreseeable future,” he continued. “Maybe next year if I can talk Brittany into it. I want to raise my kid in Kentucky [but] I’ve got to get Brittany on board.”
